Welcome To The Learning Management System (LMS)!
The Learning Management System (LMS) is used to deliver and track training and education for the judges and employees of the State of Iowa Judicial Branch.
Logging Into The LMS
To access the LMS
1. Log in using the same user name you use to log into your work computer, usually the first four letters of your last name and the number of your county (e.g. kell00).
2. If you've never logged into the LMS before, or have never changed your LMS password, the default password is "ch4ng3m3". If you've changed your LMS password in the past, enter the password you chose. If you have forgotten your password, click the "I forgot my password" link to the right to have it reset. You will receive an email with the new password.
The first screen you should see is the My Account screen. From this screen you can view course enrollments, courses completed, and your transcript. To launch a web course, click on the green Go button next to the course name. Every user is automatically enrolled in the Using the Learning Management System online course. Take a few minutes to view the lessons in this course to get more familiar with the LMS.
Enrolling in Education
Through the LMS, users can enroll in educational opportunities. These may be in-person classes, webinars, or online courses delivered directly to an employee's computer. Learners won't need to call or email a central point to register; they can do so on their own time right from the LMS site.
Find classes by clicking on the Course Catalog button. Currently there are two main catalogs -- one for live events, such as in-person classes or webinars; and one for web courses. Each catalog may be further organized into categories of classes if necessary.
Locate a class in which you are interested and click on its name. Read the details of the class. If you wish to enroll in the class, click the red apple button to enroll. You can launch the class through the My Account screen.
Taking Online Courses
Judicial Branch Education is building a library of online courses. These are interactive, visual, web-based courses that can be taken individually at any time right from an employee's work or home computer. You can access the LMS and take online courses from ANY internet-enabled computer. To view these courses from a non-work computer, the computer will need Adobe Flash Player 10 or newer and a high-speed internet connection. VPN software is NOT required.
